Harmonize September 17 2014

To smooth out; even out the action of, unify.

 

SCIENCE

Harmonizing herbs for the skin excel at correcting such things as uneven redness ( a disharmony of heat and coolness) and combination skin ( a disharmony of yin and yang, ie oil and dryness).

HISTORY

Harmonizing herbs typically have a gentle nature and a sweet flavor.  They are used to unify a formula, helping components work together.   They also often have the action of 'moderating tension', which means to release what is stuck, to improve flow.
